Weekend Mixtapes #51

Lukid keeps the “old ivories tinkling”, with this piano music mixtape for Blowing Up The Workshop. Debussy, Ravel, Cage and everything you’ll be looking for on a Sunday.

Not only that the new Solid Steel website is nothing but a disaster in user experience, it appears their mixes are no longer available for download. Fortunately, there’s still the Mixcloud option to listen to their mixes, which makes it more bearable. This week, you can listen to mixes from Anthony Naples (above) and Four Tet.

Stones Throw also has a bit of a weird podcast policy, since there’s no way of listening without iTunes. However, I suggest you give latest episode a try, since it was compiled by the label’s very own Mndsgn.

And since we like to end the selection with and oldie, here’s a Kemistry & Storm mixtape, originally recorded in 1995.

Metalheadz Sunday Sessions

Like Ben UFO, I’ve never been to the Metalheadz Sunday Sessions at London’s Blue Note club, which took place between 1995 and 1998. In my case, it’s rather bitter realizing I bought the first Platinum Breakz compilation whilst in London back in the summer of ’96, so I actually had a fair chance and blew it.

Anyway, Metalheadz uploaded a VHS rip documenting those days to their YouTube channel, “featuring a whole heap of familiar faces and a DJ Set from Grooverider”, not to mention the fancy 3D renderings. On top of that, make sure to check out several recordings from the Blue Note on the Metalheadz SoundCloud page.
